Erlau has again been awarded the contract for a framework agreement with the Austrian Federal Railway (Österreichische Bundesbahn, ÖBB).
The benches and seating groups designed especially for the ÖBB will now be installed as part of a step-by-step process in all newly-built and modernised railway stations, and their platforms, throughout the entire 'Alpine Republic', thus finding a large distribution.
With similar market success in Germany (Erlau has been a trustworthy partner to Deutsche Bahn for 15 years) followed by the conclusion of the updated framework agreement with DB, Erlau is expanding its strategic position of market leadership consistently and systematically.
The user-friendly railway platform bench range was developed in accordance with the specifications of Deutsche Bahn and tailored to meet the requirements of railway stations. Resistance to vandalism and durability, paired with appealing design, were the specifications that Erlau managed to best fulfil, according to a statement from the product development department of DB AG.
Erlau's long-term guarantee confirms its quality. A ten-year anti-rust guarantee, a brake dust-resistant and solvent-resistant surface with a 350µ Rilsan coating and concealed wire ends are just a few of Erlau's quality criteria.
